Yep, during the "latedl call", the file is also added into the download table (see function AddStaticDownloads). The reasoning behind this behaviour is simple - some player might connect while everybody else is getting the ingame download.
I might add a boolean parameter for cases when you don't need file consistency amongst the players and one more native for file removal from the download table. I'm curious - what exactly is your use case? How the fact that some players doesn't have the needed files doesn't break their experience?
